Using the skills from your undergraduate degree, you'll be prepared with the essential practical skills and theoretical knowledge to become a registered nurse in just two years.


This course is aimed at those who already have a degree and some prior healthcare or related experience, and are committed to providing excellence in care to child patients (from birth to the age of 19). Students are expected to demonstrate the Chief Nursing Officer's six C's of nursing - care, compassion, competence, communication, courage and commitment - as they learn how to deliver outstanding healthcare in a supportive environment. 

The course offers an enquiry-based, person-centred approach, building on your existing skills for learning. It also encompasses shared learning with other disciplines and professions, developing your clinical leadership skills and preparing you for practice. 

Alongside the huge range of University support services, care has been taken to develop a course that supports you to become a confident and independent learner. We welcome students who have recently completed an undergraduate degree, or simply want a change of career, and academic support from personal tutors and peers can help students back into education.

The Division of Nursing sits within the School of Health Sciences, which is a research active school. All our teaching staff are experts in the field, having published key nursing textbooks and the majority are registered nurses working in academia.
